Filming on Oxford High Street. QL in the movies!

We’ve had a very exciting week here at Queen’s Lane Coffee House, hosting the film crew for Mamma Mia 2! The cast and crew needed a base for their filming last week. We were delighted when they asked if they could hire the cafe exclusively for their use all afternoon and evening. We would like to say a big thank you to Gary Goetzman, the film’s producer and Tom Crooke from Obscure Pictures, the location manager.

Queen’s Lane itself was completely closed and as you can see from the pictures below, the action was right on our doorstep. We were all working until long after 11pm and we hope we gave everyone a warm and comfortable home despite the freezing evening outside. We can’t wait to see the results!
